Its sixty oarsmen could swiftly deliver as many as four hundred warriors to a battlefield along the coast or well inland via a river. Clinker built and protected by high gunnels, the drakkar had to be light and extremely manoeuvrable.
For other reasons please contact me to get a return authorization, restocking fees applied. We often associate the term with elegant longships with dragonheads and upright sterns and stems, and a rig with a broad square sail. In shallow water, the warriors would move to one side of the ship to tilt it so it would pass over rocks and shoals. Wooden mast and yard, sailcloth, cotton rigging line, resin and hardwood fittings, plus authentic figurehead allow you to outfit your model just like the original. Actually only a few ships were equipped with dragonheads, as they should mark the status and rank of the viking kings.
In the last days of the Viking Age, three hundred of these longships were in the Viking fleet.


The longships' tapered bows and sterns enabled the Vikings to row the ships forwards and backwards without first having to turn the ships around. The majority of the ships were more modestly decorated, optimized for sailing abilities, strength, speed and cargo capacity needed for the purpose. The snarling ornament on the bow and the blood red sails cast fear into the hearts of the towns and countries they pillaged.
The ship was first housed beside the Field Columbian Museum in Chicago, then restored in 1920 and placed in Lincoln Park under a fenced-in, wooden shelter. The committee invested a portion of its money into obtaining blueprints and architectural plans for several possible locations. At different times the committee was close to placing the "Viking" in its own museum, at one time on Chicago 's museum campus, and at another time on Navy Pier.
The American Scandinavian Council offered to commit funds to clean, move and store the "Viking". In 1994 the Chicago Park District "sold" the ship to the American Scandinavian Council which assumed the obligation to display, repair and perpetually care for the ship. Afterwards it was moved to Good Templar Park in Geneva, Illinois and secured under a canopy. This canopy has been replaced several times by a generous donor (most recently in the winter of 2006). The dragon "head" and "tail" of the Viking ship remain in storage at the Museum of Science and Industry.
The "Viking" should be valued for the fine ship she is and placed into a museum for the public to admire.
